Enlightenment in Daily Life

Dana Fuchs, Buddhist meditation teacher in Harlem

Meditation connects us to our mind’s extraordinary potential for peace, happiness, love and wisdom. This potential is our Buddha nature, our potential for enlightenment. Meditation puts us in touch with this possibility. We recognize enlightenment not as an abstraction, but as something real that we can tap into in our daily life. In so doing, we open ourselves up to becoming a Bodhisattva, a person who identifies with his or her full potential and who sets about to actualize it, motivated by love and compassion for others in the world.

In this course we will explore how we can begin to become a Bodhisattva and to have the most meaningful and joyful life imaginable.
